“Drivers really can’t miss this scary roach as they pass our billboard,” Eric Gunner, Viking’s business development manager, said in a news release. “Rest assured, if roaches or other pests are ‘bugging’ you, we offer the legendary strength of the Vikings to fight them off; if they’re ‘encroaching’ on your home or business, Viking is the answer.”
Another facet of Viking’s marketing strategy is its “Bug A Friend” program, rewarding customers for referrals and offering discounts on first orders to those referred.
